Baghdad, IRAQ – Iraqi security forces thwarted a terrorist attack that was planned to target Shiite visitors in Baghdad.

“Security forces received reports about the presence of three suicide bombers in al-Radwaniyah district in southern Baghdad,” Mawazin News website quoted the Baghdad Operations Command as saying in a statement.

The terrorists, according to the statement, “were planning to target Shiite visitors taking part in Arbaeen rituals.”

Arbaeen is a Shiite ritual marking the end of a 40-day mourning period for the 7th century death of Imam Hussein, grandson of the Prophet Mohammad.

Former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein banned Shiite gatherings for religious events for decades.

Pilgrims have gathered in sacred Shiite cities including Kerbala and Najaf for religious duties since a U.S.-led invasion toppled him in 2003.

But those gatherings were marred by suicide bombings carried out by Sunni militants, notably from al Qaeda and Islamic State, who regard Iraq’s majority Shi’ites as infidels.

Now that those groups have largely been defeated by U.S.-backed Iraqi security forces, Shiite pilgrims may have more peace of mind during this year’s Arbaeen, though security remains tight across the country.
